Amira's Orange & Chocolate Cake

Oranges are in season at the moment so a wonderful time to bake this cake. Combined with chocolate, this gives it a lovely jaffa flavour. The cake keeps for up to a week in the fridge which would also give it time to develop its flavour. But I don't think it will last that long.


4 eggs
1 ¾ cups sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup sunflower oil
1 teas vanilla essence
Rind of 1 lemon
Rind of 2 oranges
½ cup orange juice (or Juice of 2 oranges)
3 ½ cups self raising flour
1 tab cocoa

Preheat oven 180oC (170oC fan-forced). Mix with a balloon whisk eggs, sugar, lemon rind, orange rind, orange juice and oil and vanilla essence. Sift flour and add to mixture alternatively with milk, stir gently with a wooden spoon. Take 1/3 of the mixture and add sifted cocoa, stir to combine. Place plain cake in large greased ring pan, add blobs of chocolate cake around and swirl with a knife to give a marble effect. Pop into oven and bake for approx 40 minutes depending on your oven.
